This war is reminiscent of a smaller version of Gulf War with castles and towers to besiege, large open field battles, plus more room for archery with a ravine for a great woods walk. HOT showers on site and potable water. Border Downs will have a special tourney too. Plenty of room for merchants too. Location:
